I paste below an article written in the Daily Beast, a progressive forum, entitled "Republicans' Nefarious Election Ploy" by John Avlon. As I have written about twice before, this is, if perfected, one of the greatest threats yet to the republic. EVERYONE who loves fairness, ethics and democracy should be against this naked power grab Republicans are plotting in swing states to, by devious means, change the electoral college to ensure a Republican win in all presidential elections. If that should ever happen be assured that Republicans will be gunning for your Social Security, Medicare and much much more. Make your voices heard by voicing your protest whether to swing state legislatures, to state, local and national newspapers, to attorneys who understand the Constitutional issues of one man one vote including the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and to the ACLU to ask for their support. Howeveryou can fight this do so INCLUDING urging others to vote Democratic in every election so this WILL backfire on Republicans as their attempts at voter suppression did in the 2012 presidential handing Republicans a decided defeat they did NOT expect. They thought voters would stay home. They didn't. Republicans did not know what hit them! Good.
Hit them again and again until they finally realize they are a defeated party which cannot win on their merits with backward, low information, science denying insane in other words, just plain STUPID ideology. In the end if the electorate votes Democrat it won't matter if they gerrymander all the districts in the country. They will still lose! This MUST be fought both by the electorate and in the state and federal courts everywhere it is attempted. It is obvious they are trying to negate minority votes, the votes of women, the young, the disabled and all those who traditionally vote Democrat. If you value your life, your children's lives and all who come after us you will NOT be duped by Republican dirty tricks.
WHY WE MUST ELECT DEMOCRATS LOCAL, STATE LEGISLATURES, GOVERNORSHIPS, AND NATIONALLY. IT IS MORE IMPORTANT NOW THAN EVER BEFORE!
